New Black Coach Won’t Have The Job Because Of Race Or Colour- GFA

Head of Communication of the Ghana Football Association, Henry Asante Twum, has said the new trainer to lead the Black Stars won’t be narrowed to race or colour but the competence of the person.

Twum said that the association has received over 100 applications for the open position and that their decision will be based on merit rather than race or colour.

“Over 1000 coaches have applied for the job. We keep getting applications each and every day. The job is open for all.

Once you are a competent coach. We haven’t made any shortlist and at the right time, we will. There is pressure to appoint a competent coach. We are not looking at race or colour but just a competent coach,” he said.

Otto Addo left his job in December of last year when Ghana was eliminated early from the Qatar 2022 World Cup. in the meantime, only former coach Kwesi Appiah has so far made it known that he has applied for the position, as he hopes to serve a third time. But according to rumors, Chris Hughton, a former technical advisor, has submitted his application and is hoping to be hired.
